I know they were big, but the only hit I remember was "Indian Reservation", and his solo "Arizona".

They weren't that big, R4.

R5, yes, actually "Indian Reservation" was a number one song on Billboard.

R6, Mark Lindsay's group Paul Revere and the Raiders were not one of those big 1960s pop groups you've read about. They had a good cover of Louie Louie, and only a couple of high charted 45s. Arizona and Indian Reservation were Lindsay's SOLO efforts, not the Raiders'.

R9's pic makes me think of Mr Spock before Elton John.

R10, no, you're mistaken. Indian Reservation was not a solo by Mark Lindsay.

by Anonymousreply 15November 26, 2021 2:28 AM

R10 is right. Indian Reservation was a solo production by Mark. But the record company ddcided to release it as a Raiders single. Mark has said that decision cost him a lot of money by having to share royalties instead of collecting them all himself.

I guess Paul Revere was a little bit jealous, since it was his group.

R7. "Kicks" was a big hit. And the group was popular but harmless.

They had their "gimmick" with the Paul Revere outfits. But no one in the '60s had a better voice than Gary Puckett (and The Union Gap):

Gary Puckett had a great voice, but his songs like "Young Girl" and "Lady Willpower" were kind of pervy. Even moreso now when he sings them at his current age.

"Indian Reservation" was a hit for the group, not a solo release for Lindsay who didn't leave the group as a single until 1975.

Mark Lindsay is still alive and has been part of an oldies group tour including, yes, Gary Puckett, for awhile.

I follow him on Twitter cuz he's a cat-loving liberal.

R12 there’s a local morning news anchor who’s probably 45 who had a full facelift about three years ago and he has that. I won’t watch him because he’s always watching himself in the monitor.

by Anonymousreply 36November 27, 2021 1:20 PM

It's not time but facelifts that have deformed Dave Clark's face.

I remember seeing a documentary that claimed Clark managed the group's finances and ended up to basically screwing his fellow band members out of a lot of the money due them.

Also, I presumed he was gay because he never married and had no children and was thisclose to Freddie Mercury. (Clark said he was with Mercury when he died.)

Anyway, the DC5 did have a number of good songs.

I saw Paul Revere and the Raiders in concert at the Oakland Coliseum in the 60s. It was my first concert, I was twelve. I screamed with all the girls. I was in love with all of them (except Paul, nobody had a crush on Paul) but Mark Lindsey was impossibly sexy. I read every teen magazine with an article about him and still remember that he had an undiagnosed stigmatism as a kid and didn't realize his vision was terrible until the day he got glasses and cried in astonishment.

'Kicks' was a HUGE hit back then which in retrospect is surprising since it was anti-drug with lines like "before you find out it's too late, girl you better get straight". It's a good song.

Mark was certainly hot in the day, but he was also a jinx. Two of the houses he rented later became the scenes of infamous murders. The house he rented on Cielo Drive was the later the scene of the Manson murders, and the house he rented on Wonderland Avenue was later the scene of the Wonderland murders involving John Holmes.

The week ending August 2nd, 1969, Paul Revere and The Raiders last hit, "Let Me" would fall to #40 in the singles charts. The week ending August 9th, the song was off the charts and the morning of the 9th Sharon Tate et al would be brutally murdered.

r39 We must be around the same age and lived in the same area. I was born in '52 and grew up in the East Bay.

Was your concert outdoors at the Coliseum or indoors at the arena?

by Anonymousreply 44November 28, 2021 4:25 PM

R44 It was inside, so I guess it was the arena. I also saw Cat Stevens at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, and that was it for concerts. I actually hated most rock and roll from the 60s.

Aggressive, thumping sound without melody. Lyrics which can't be heard amongst the din.

I was about 14 when they were big. In retrospect, the coolest thing about them is that my sweet Irish Catholic Mother liked them and thought Mark Lindsay was hot. She liked his pony tail! (maybe this story proves my mother was cool, not the band?)

I always confused Gary Puckett & The Union Gap with Paul Revere and The Raiders. Both had some good songs; Gary had a great voice. AND his songs were fucking sexy. Young Girl? Damm, she knew what she wanted.
